It’s not often that there’s a transfer saga in which you really want the player to leave. Normally, you either what a coveted star to arrive or hope that your prized asset will choose to stay put.
That’s not the case with Mario Balotelli; it’s clear that Klopp, the Liverpool hierarchy, and the vast majority of fans want him out of the Anfield exit door as soon as possible.
Sadly, more clubs seem to be ruling themselves out of a move than expressing a serious interest in signing the cigarette-smoking Italian.
However, there is another glimmer of hope tonight — according to the not-so-reliable gianlucadimarzio.com, the latest club that might do us a favour are Dutch giants Ajax.
The article claims that Mario’s agent, Mino Raiola, has spoken with the club and preliminary talks will take place.
You make of the rumour what you will, but just make sure you pray to the football rumour gods before you go to bed tonight!
